Hello and welcome to The Shmupdate Update!

This update almost nearly finishes off the major content that was planned for Cavity Busters. Besides polish, bugs and whatever else I might decide to add (I added a whole new NPC yesterday because...) the game is almost complete! Now is a good to pick up the game if you've been holding off. And because after this update, the price for Cavity Busters will be increasing slightly. I'm thinking the final price will be 14.99 USD but still not sure. Anyways, on to what's in this beast!

So probably the obvious thing, there's a new shmup mode/segment! I can share how you access that but steer clear if you want to figure it out on your own. It's nothing crazy. [spoiler] Fill Gobs mouth with teeth and play as normal. [/spoiler] I hope to flesh out the shmup mode a little more. It's some good ol' fashion shmup action though.

A new Gummy
Yeah! Now there's a total of 8 playable Gummys. The newest gummy lets you BE THE TOOTH. You'll have to unlock it or you can access it through the accessibility menu. If you play with a controller, turning the auto aim (click the right stick) is suggested.

Besides loads of changes and balances AND 17 new upgrades, those are the big two. You can catch a full change log below. If you're enjoying your time with Cavity Busters, please consider leaving a review so we can get to a 'very positive' steam rating! :) As always, thanks for your patience, your time and suggestions, and most of all, for playing Cavity Busters!

See ya!
